Some of the historic buildings along Suring's Main Street:

 Dairy Delight Depot, serves the best Carolina-style
pulled pork and slaw in the world!

 The Boarding House Supper Club is housed in one of
Suring's oldest buildings. Restored to its original look, the
second floor was once a brothel!

 One example of the beautiful brick buildings built after
most of the downtown was destroyed by fire on January 30, 1908.

Another post-1908 fire brick building, now home to
Four Seasons antiques and gift shop.

Check out the cool mural on the east side of the Dollar Value Store!

 This historic bridge (now open only to foot traffic) crosses the
Oconto River and is located on the west side of the village.

This stately barn stands sentinel at the east entrance to the village.

The marker is located in Suring, Wisconsin.
